    Japanese Sword handle wrap style

    Hello everyone,
    Can you tell me if this is an accepted style of handle wrap? I thought I saw somewhere that this style, although less common, was indeed an accepted Japanese style. Or, as commonly seen is it an amatuer re-wrap?
    Thank you for your insight,

    Not what you would expect to see on a Kai Gunto,especially one with a Mon.

          Smith's name:
          貞次
          Sadatsugu

          Many of them -- no telling how old this blade is just from the small bit of signature. Markus Sesko's Japanese Swordsmiths lists 7 Showa smiths named 貞次; and about 24 from the 12th century through to 1704.

            Don't know if you've had the mon explained or not. I couldn't find you exact one, but it seems to me a variation of the Oxalis plant. Couldn't find a specific family name tied to it.

              The wrap is fine. This style (the name escapes me) is fairly common on Kai Gunto. It was used on tachi mounted swords in medieval times, which the Kai Gunto mounts are based on. My gendaito by Mitsuyasu has it.

                          Thanks Bruce. Been a while since I’ve dived deeply into swords, but I think there are something over 100 different styles of wrapping the tsuka.

                            I'm with Jareth on this one.
                            The knot at the Pommel end is incorrectly done to my knowledge, so i would say post war re-wrap aswell.

                              What is incorrect about the knot?
